National Route 28 of the National Cycle Network in Devon will run from Okehampton to Plymouth via Moretonhampstead, Newton Abbot, Totnes and Salcombe.

1. Okehampton to South Zeal and Bovey Tracey

Two unconnected sections including an on-road section from the eastern edge of Okehampton to South Zeal and the Stover Way which links Fore Street in Bovey Tracey and Jetty Marsh Road in Newton Abbot. It crosses over the A38 at Heathfield and travels alongside the Stover Canal.

2. Totnes to Yealmpton

This section of the route travels via Salcombe. Starting at Totnes you follow quiet roads through Blacklawton. Past Blacklawton there is the option to take a detour to the coast, travelling to Slapton Sands and Torcross. You then rejoin Route 28 after Stokenham where the route travels inland to the coastal town of Salcombe. Using the Salcombe ferry you then continue onto South Milton, Churchstow and Ermington before arriving in Yealmpton.
